The Wing is a big board that handles and feels like a small board. The carbon fiber version makes it feel small and very light. No fins on toeside too, so you can slide from heelside to toeside like a Mako.
Don't pre-judge when you see 165, its irrelevant with the Wing. It's defenitely NOT a Door or a plank!

Can confirm, it glides through lake chop. Very smooth board. Hauls upwind.

I took it out for the first time yesterday when my 12m did a full hindenburg and rolled 3 times without inverting ....anyway, light wind...broke out my 15 contra and this board and it planned very well. Wind came up and the chop increased and it was nice to have a lot of board under me...

I think I really like this board after a few days this year-Not just a light wind board. I still like my Cabrinha Spectrum as my goto board, then the light wave and lastly the Cabrinha ACE. These are just my preferences!!! YMMV

The Wing handles higher wind & big chop due to the increased rocker over other light wind boards. Also goes over whitewater in waves no problem. Rocker also makes it easy to initiate a back roll, etc. I normally ride at Sherman Island where the chop/swell is similar to the Gorge, but a little smaller.
